A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Treat yourself like a precious object.

No matter where we run, we cannot get away from ourselves. Thus, we can either be our own worst enemies, or our own best friends. When we choose to love and nurture ourselves like precious objects, we learn how to truly love another human beings in the same manner.
